Boosting the e-mobility market

The world is increasingly looking to e-mobility as an answer to the problem of harmful transport emissions. But while more and more electric vehicles are now being produced, they need powerful batteries to become a genuinely sustainable transport solution.


E-mobility statistics

Lower emissions
Total greenhouse gas emissions from electric vehicles are up to 30% lower than those from petrol- or diesel-fueled cars.
4.7 TWh
Increasing demand
Global demand for Li-ion batteries is expected to soar over the next decade, with the number of GWh required increasing from about 700 GWh in 2022 to around 4.7 TWh by 2030.
Less energy consumption
thanks to the continuous mixing process and factor 10 less scrap compared to planetary mixer

Battery boost

Electric vehicles are a rapidly growing market, but they are of little use without powerful batteries. The power and energy density of a battery is provided by electrode slurries, whose production process has traditionally been relatively slow and expensive. Bühler technology, however, has helped to change that.

In order to meet the ever-growing need for lithium-ion batteries for the e-mobility market, Bühler has developed a unique process for the fully continuous mixing of electrode slurries. In partnership with Chinese battery manufacturer Lishen, this has provided an increase in energy density. Our electrode slurry manufacturing process also allows saving up to 50% of investment and operation costs. Increasing demand means larger-scale production, and our continuous mixing process combines the basic operations of continuous raw material dosing, pre-mixing, kneading, fine-dispersing and degassing in a single device. This cuts operating costs while ensuring optimum product quality.

This new factory of ours is producing a new generation of batteries. This 30% increase in energy density means we have achieved a quantum leap.
